As the European winters seem to last longer every year designer Massimiliano Giornetti made a smart decision making his coats the main focus of the show. He styled off at least half of his looks with a statement coat or jacket. Like a pinstripe jacket, a fur coat or a thick tuxedo jacket that might do the job outdoor too.
Besides a few navy blue and plum additions it was an all black and white collection. Shades that made it easier to focus on the design and details, like sheer parts, simple necklaces (sometimes worn in pairs) and tied up Japanese obi-belts.
Giornetti wasn’t trying too hard to be different or go with any flow. He just created a bunge of slightly minimalistic dresses and coats. Nothing too crazy, yet right on track for the woman that loves to show style without putting herself out there too much. His leather coats were wearable and modern, perfect to last throughout an average winter season. Even if the snow is lasting till March, like this year.

Known for her sweet, soft and girly designs Anna Molinari did not disappoint on Friday. Pastel shades sweaters, coats and (unflattering) pleated pants opened the Blumarine show. Knitted hot pants were mixed with fur-like coats in the same shade as the nude colored footwear seemed to almost be one with the models’ feet. A menswear inspired section in the middle of the show (with a tweed cape, hounds tooth printed fur and a checked suit with statement shoulders) woke everyone in the audience up, before continuing with baby blues and vale pinks. Classic Voluminous shirts with bow details and ruffled skirts were right up on Molinari’s alley. As a few sheer T-shirt dresses and pleated short skirts added a welcome young touch to the collection.
